Clark and I Somewhere in Connecticut by Rumble Productions and Theatre Replacement: In 2005, Vancouver theatre artist James Long found a collection of 7 photo albums and travel journals in the alley near his East Vancouver home. The collection, complete with detailed captions and letters, documents a family’s history between 1950 and 1987, and includes everything from birth notices to a full eulogy to the archivist’s Pomeranian, Mandy. A team of collaborators went in search of the origins of these books in the fall of 2007 and ran into, among many things, questions surrounding the legality and morality of working with found materials. What started as a simple trip to the country immediately carried the creators on narrative jags across property, oceans, and beyond. Friday, December 3 at 8:30 pm and Saturday, December 4 at 2:00 pm.
Two Headed Dog presents Clown Town City Limits: Clowntown City Limits brings together a trio of down and out clowns living in a home that’s not the worst place in the world, but “worst place adjacent.” Big Bugs, Corky, and Adolph manage to pay a back-handed tribute to the world of clowns while turning it upside down and inside out, revealing the darkness inherent in every black-velvet clown painting that ever hung over a frightened child’s bed. Friday, December 3 at 8:30 pm and Saturday, December 4 at 2:00 pm.
SUNOH! Tell me, Sister, presented by the Ghost World Company Strange Things/The Post Natyam Collective: “SUNOH! Tell me, Sister” grapples with the historical legacy of the courtesans of the Indian subcontinent, bringing to life subversive stories of erotic power and women’s resistance. A duet integrating classical and contemporary Indian dance, theater, original music, and video, the production is a transnational choreographic collaboration between members of the Post Natyam Collective and is being created over the internet through a long distance, internet-based, creative process. Saturday, December 4 at 8:30 pm and Sunday, December 5 at 1:00 pm.
Critical Mass Performance Group presents Untitled: A new, multi-disciplinary performance piece, which explores the connections and collisions of mythic American ideals, with Poland’s epic struggle for independence, through the transmission of ideas across time and space, and individual acts that shift the avalanche of history. Saturday, December 4 at 8:30 pm and Sunday, December 5 at 1:00 pm.
Watts Village Theater Company presents Clover and Cactus: In the late 1840’s approximately 200 United States soldiers defected from the American army to fight for Mexico in the Mexican American War. These mostly Irish soldiers came to be known as Los San Patricios (the St. Patrick’s Battalion). Clover & Cactus, set the night before the final battle of the war, sharply explores the historical issues that helped draw a group of strangers from opposite sides of the world together, discovering common bonds, and the worth found therein. Saturday, December 4 at 8:30 pm and Sunday, December 5 at 1:00 pm.
